## Formula for Individual Reactant Order

$aR \to bP, Rate = -\frac{1}{a} \frac{d[R]}{dt} = \frac{1}{b}\frac{d[P]}{dt}$

### Formula for Individual Reactant Order

Is there a specific formula to use to solve for the individual reactant orders when given values in a table such as in 7A.17?

### Re: Formula for Individual Reactant Order

There is a method but not really a formula. You find two reactions where one reactant is held constant and the other is changing and examine the change in rates to determine the order of the changing reactant.
